Entry Description

Senator appointed to serve on three interim study committees, commissions

INDIANAPOLIS—Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) has been appointed to serve on the Central Indiana Transit Study Committee that is charged with determining the viability of expanding mass transit systems in Marion County and its surrounding counties. The committee is the result of House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1011 approved during the recent legislative session. The committee will review the possible construction of a light rail line between Marion and Hamilton counties as well as rapid bus transit, added bus routes, the use of a referendum this upcoming election and how the initiative could be funded.

Another interim study panel Sen. Lanane will serve on is the newly created Commission on Improving the Status of Children in Indiana. Formed from recommendations made by a bipartisan panel reviewing the Department of Child Services (DCS) last interim, the commission will hold its first meetings this summer. The commission will work to streamline and standardize efforts made across agencies to improve child safety.  The commission will also take up the merits of requiring photo identification for families utilizing the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Sen. Lanane has also been appointed to the Census Data Advisory Committee.

These appointments were made by the Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Fort Wayne) upon recommendation of Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson).

The Indiana General Assembly annually convenes interim study committees and permanent commissions to conduct in-depth research and analysis of issues affecting the state. Recommendations from these committees are often the basis for future legislation. More information about committee topics, schedules and agendas is available online at

Sen. Lanane represents Indiana Senate District 25 including the portions of Madison and Delaware counties, the City of Muncie and the southeastern portion of the City of Anderson.
